Award-winning violinist Joo Yeon Sir has got a busy year in front of her. It kicks off with a free lunchtime recital at St. Martin-in-the-Fields on Friday 9 January, continuing with concerts with orchestras in London, Cambridge, Croydon and Oxford, as well as presenting the complete Beethoven Sonata Cycle at Royal College of Music.
For January, her diary looks like this. Of the four concerts, the one on 28 January looks particularly interesting, involving dance and animation as well as music.
